Results announced yesterday revealed that although parents feel a stronger sense of purpose and meaning in life, they were not as happy as people without children.
The survey, conducted by the Office for National Statistics upon David Cameron’s orders, is designed to go beyond the usual economic statistics to find out what really matters to voters. The £2 million survey has been slammed by critics for being a phenomenal waste of money and time.
Patricia Morgan, an author on family issues, said: “Mr Cameron wanted to know what is really important for voters, and now he knows. It is the same as has been shown by all the evidence piling up for decades. But the Coalition is doing nothing. There seems to be the same embedded hostility to marriage and to couples with children that has dominated governments for years.”
The report also revealed that couples who were married were significantly more satisfied with life than couples who lived together.
